Three Floyds does not make many dumpers, but this is a dumper that they should be ashamed to bottle. The appearance was nice enough with a golden copper color. The aroma was the first hint of a problem as it smell like rubbing alcohol. There was really nothing attractive about the smell. On the initial taste, I felt as though I were drinking nail polish. Trying to be more positive, I tried to start over and image what the brewers were going for. I noticed grape skin, tart apples, but the nail polish kept coming back. The mouthfeel was thick enough to make me believe that this once was a Belgian Strong before sitting in barrels and going wrong. I could not finish the glass.

5/5 rDev +58.2%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Gorgeous Carmine/Auburn body with an Isabelline/Beige head.
Aroma: Caramel and toffee with hints of sweet berries and a strong cognac/bermet-esque backbone.
Flavor: Sour grapes and toasted wood siphoned through an old, rusty pipe that was lacquered with moonshine on the inside; notes of dark fruit and deep wood with a high-alcohol finish. Aftertaste settles into what I can best describe as 'rusty wine'.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth, yet with a substantial amount of carbonation.
Overall: While this may not be one of Three Floyds' most popular beers, I absolutely love it, and I can say with unwavering certainty that hands-down, this is my favorite from 3F. Above, I have described it in terms which would make the average person (beer connoisseur or not) avoid this beer entirely, but these descriptions are what I love about this beer: dark, woodsy, and fruity with an overwhelming alcohol finish which makes it acrid to the point of thinking that this came from a ruined batch...and yet, I want more. In short, I love it and would recommend that everyone try this if possible.

Poured from a 22 oz. orange waxed bottle into a Three Floyds Brewing Company branded teku glass
Pours a hazy dark golden with heavy amber accents topped by a two finger off white head. Great retention, significant lacing. Oak and hints of wine on the nose. Plenty of oak, white wine, apple and pear, and Belgian yeast "juicy fruit." Finishes with oak and white wine accented booziness and a very mild tartness. Low carbonation, slick body. Lighter side of medium bodied. This brew certainly has improved with age. The barrel character was far too strong and dominating upon release last year, however it is much more balanced currently. Still not a stellar brew, but much more enjoyable with a little bit of age.
